A twist on a well-loved board game has made its way to Sherwood Park.

Outset Media and Walmart have once again partnered up to create a game based on iconic locations in Sherwood Park. Just like Fort Saskatchewan-opoly released in the summer, Sherwood Park-opoly features all of the iconic landmarks of Sherwood Park and greater Strathcona County. 

“We’ve got streets like Baseline Road, we’ve got Lakeland Drive; but more than just streets, we try to make it more fun, a little personal, so we put other points of interest like the Edmonton Nordic Ski Club, Countryside Golf Club, we’ve got Broadmoor Lake Park,” said Jean-Paul Teskey, senior vice president of Outset Media.  

The puzzle and board game company began making the board games a few years ago, starting with large cities like Calgary, Vancouver and Edmonton. Teskey said the games did reasonably well in larger centres, however, they’ve found the most success in smaller communities. 

Some of the other Sherwood Park locations added to the game include the Strathcona Science Provincial Park, Festival Place, and Bev Facey Community High School. 

“Everyone knows how to play Monopoly; it’s the best-selling game of all time. But to do it with places that you know and live around or have been to, it just makes it a little more fun.” 

The board games can be found exclusively at Walmart stores and their website.
